Procurement initiatives to support small business

PSR supports small business participation in the Australian Government procurement market. Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) and Small Enterprise participation statistics are available on the Department of Finance’s website.

PSR recognises the importance of ensuring that small businesses are paid on time.

The results of the survey of Australian Government payments to small business are available on the Treasury’s website.

PSR applies procurement practices that are consistent with the Commonwealth Procurement Rules and the Commonwealth Contracting Suite for low-risk procurements valued under $200,000 (inclusive of GST) that do not unfairly discriminate against small and medium enterprises. PSR recognises the importance of timely payments to small businesses, and ensures that key financial systems and processes are robust to facilitate these payments.
